45Hutong - part of the Aqua group in One Peking?
Great view from the restuarant and expensive food - lucky you for not having to pay!
However, from what I remember reviews have only been so so for the food in this place - at least for the price that you have to pay.
Astroboy - Queen's Cafe is still always packed every lunch time in Causeway Bay. Not bad food either - safe and solid fare.

48Bistro Manchu is pricey. Good, but pricey.
The best northern place for dumplings in HK around that area is on either Wellington or Stanley Street in Central. I can't remember the name, but it's on the North side of the street, just a few doors to the west from a Chinese curry lunch place. It's really quite good - they even have donkey meat (which I didn't think was great) but authentic northern dumplings. For cheap (relatively)

This is more northern Chinese food - but quite tasty, reasonably priced and they have bilingual picture menus! Lots of dumplings and noodle dishes. Also try the 'drunken chicken'.
Several branches including one in Chatham Rd TST.
Next door to the TST branch, they have recently opened a HK style restaurant with Cantonese dishes - similar to the original (picture menu, ok prices).
Both worth a visit.

50Now we're getting way out of the "budget" portion of LP, but I was going to try Joel Rubechon's L'Atlier in the Landmark. Except I found out it was usually between $1,400 - $1,600 per person. Without wine. Gah!
(Just for comparison, you can get out of L'Atlier in Las Vegas or New York for about $95-$115 per person - so the HK mark-up is like 100%).
I still might go next time, but I was just unprepared for the prices. Even if it is Joel Rubechon.

56Thought this thread was lost! Luckily not so:
Lung Wah Hotel in Shatin for delicious pigeon. Each pigeon cost HK$68, and I think probably 2 per person is about right. It's served Chinese style (head and all) but really is very very good. They have a full menu of other food as well, but I have yet to find anything else very good on it.

58Macau Eats (March 08):
Ate in O Santos (No. 20, Rua de Cunha) in Taipa Village for the first time in over a year - and it won't be so long until next time again! Good clams, a nice oxtail, fish cakes and a reasonably priced bottle of wine. Packed with locals as well.
Nga Tim in Coloane Viilage is fast becoming one of my favourites. Delicious quail, more clams, and a leg of lamb washed down with some Borba in the shadow of St. Francis Xavier Church. Recommended.
Fernando's on Hac Sa Beach has its detractors, and I can see its faults as well. Go on a Hong Kong holiday and you have a long long wait for a table. Food quality could be better sometimes as well. However, over the years it has built up enough goodwill with me (and others I expect) to see us return again and again. Today was a good day - scrumptious pork belly, a simple green salad with delectable tomatoes- you can taste the sun in them - and yet more clams - just soak up that tomato sauce with the bread rolls. A jug of sangria washed it all down.
Not bad for a 24 hour stay. No more food for me for another couple of days maybe!

59oh man, just saw this on my list of recently replied-to threads.
i've been in scandinavia for over a month now, i can't wait to get back to HK and go eat out properly again.
i felt weird spending more than $40-50 on food in HK the first time, but somehow now HK$90 to eat like a king is so little compared to 120NOK i saw for a sandwich at a cafe the other day (and that's the equivalent of HK$180).
